Abstract

Growth and yield performance of different varieties of sugarcane viz., L-118, BF-166, CO-1321, CP-57-614, HF-152, HF-150, HF-147, BF-162, CO-975 and CP-75-300 was evaluated under field conditions. The growth characteristics like millable canes, cane length, cane diameter and weight per cane varied significantly among the cultivars. The cultivar CP-57-614 produced significantly higher cane yield (110 t ha 1) than all other varieties. The lowest cane yield (51 t ha 1) was obtained from CP-75-300. BF-162 gave the highest sucrose content (19.78%) and commercial cane sugar (13.64%). Keeping in view quality and yield the variety CP-57-614 proved better than rest of the varieties.
